Company Town editor John Lippman is the latest to leave the Los Angeles Times Calendar section. He’s off to New Hampshire, where he’ll be the editor of a small town paper.
Lippman is the 14th voluntary exit from the Calendar section in a little under two years, an unusually high rate of departures at a time when newspaper jobs are increasingly hard to come by. We’ve heard grumblings about the section’s editor, Sallie Hofmeister, but as Kevin Roderick points out, Lippman was a Hofmeister hire, and his departure is apparently nothing to do with his boss.
